You can check what they have here - http://pickapart.co.nz/ - click on the vehicle for more info' - but they all (in the Auckland branches) seem to be at least a decade older than yours.

Thanks guys.

I have used VW heritage when I owned a golf in the UK. I am going to go look at pickapart at the weekend and see what I can scavenge.

Might just be easier to buy what I need from the uk and get it shipped over in 1 go. I am on clubpolo and there is some good information on there.

You're tenacious, that's for sure. I don't think I could have done it, - and still be married.

Did a quick google on DIY.
Sound like it's a b*tch to do it. either take the intake manifold off (and do carbon clean at the same time) or have to take the alternator off, then hope the plastic is not too brittle :(

bummer...

I replaced cambelt last year together with water pump... would have thought they replaced the thermostat as well...

Other than taking longer to warm the car, are there any other down side?

Changing coolant mean I need to borrow my friends compressor for a vacuum fill because I have turned the radiator return pipe about 45 degree (to install my intake)



No Thermostat is located in another location and is not usually specified as a replacement part. As far as a cambelt change is concerned.

If it takes longer to get warm, it increases the wear on the engine. While the engine is cold it will also run a richer mix so fuel consumption is affected too.

it might be worth joining UK polos.net as there's probably more knowledge there
